Youth & Education

The Youth & Education Committee meets on the 4th Tuesday of each month at 6:30 PM. Please check the calendar page each month for the location of the meeting and tentative agenda.

The Youth and Education Committee is responsible for the issues, programs, services, and facilities related to the education of pre-K and K-12 students in Manhattan Community District 6. The committee leads discussions on the development of policies and strategies to enhance the quality of education for our students.

Furthermore, the committee also focuses on issues that affect students outside of the classroom, including after-school programs, youth employment, and other support services.

The committee also acts as the primary liaison between the community and the Department of Education, School Construction Authority, Department of Youth and Community Development, and other related agencies and organizations.
